Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) is proud to announce the premiere of the 17th annual PRISM Showcase with host Dr. Drew Pinsky and guest co-hosts Orlando Jones (Sleepy Hollow) and Giuliana Rancic (E!

The PRISM Awards honor television shows, music, interactive media, DVDs, comic books, and movies that accurately depict mental health and substance use prevention, treatment and recovery. Uniquely, this year, EIC is also celebrating 30 years of the organization’s encouraging authentic, engaging entertainment portrayals that heighten awareness of health and social issues.
On September 14th, as a part of National Recovery Month, the PRISM Showcase will premiere on FX at 4pm (check local listings for satellite) before entering an extended availability on additional cable networks, online digital platforms, video-on-demand, and local broadcasts.
“The PRISM Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the positive power of entertainment and media to communicate about important issues, such as mental health and substance use. The nominees and award winners exemplify EIC’s mission to celebrate “the ART of making a difference” by showcasing the real-to-life situations confronted by millions of Americans every year,” said Giuliana Rancic.
“Powerful stories about mental health not only raise public awareness, but may also encourage people to recognize and address these issues in their personal lives. PRISM Awards aggregate these topics from media and spotlight the impact our industry has to create positive change in people’s lives,” said PRISM Showcase host, Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Dr. Drew, and co-hosts Giuliana Rancic, and Orlando Jones, will be joined by numerous well-known television and movie stars,
